Take the Survey

Calling All Backpackers and Day Hikers!
 
Medical professionals from the University of Colorado need your help for a research study that will look at the prevalence of back pain among recreational backpackers and day hikers. We are hoping to generate future research to help keep people outside on the trails. You do not need to have back pain to participate. All you need is experience backpacking or day hiking. If you are eligible to complete our survey you have the option to enter your email for a chance to win a day pack or a backpack. Thank you in advance for your time. Your input is extremely appreciated.
